big buffet

Our usual dinner gang were craving something different, and Mrs. C remembered that a friend had recommended this place for buffet. Since 'buffet' is the most beautiful word in the English language, we felt obliged to try the offerings here.

The restaurant is located at the Newlands golf club, and since we are not Langley people we had a little trouble finding it. After a scenic trip through farm country we finally found it. There was plenty of parking and a choice of two dining venues, the restaurant and bar upstairs. Since we wanted buffet action, the restaurant was the only choice.

The place looked like a big banquet hall, and I suspect that is what it is most of the time. It was nicely appointed and everything was clean, including the w/c. There was a band playing which added to the ambiance, but we wanted food.

As for service, our server was friendly enough, but she would disappear for long periods. Since it was buffet her only job was plate clearing and drink top-ups. When our server wasn't around we just stacked our plates on the table and waited for them to disappear.

There was a decent selection of buffet items, and of course a giant slab of prime rib at the carvery station. We accompanied our meal with some wine which was a bit pricey for plonk. The buffet cost 20 bucks, but if you wanted coffee, soft drinks, or dessert, it was 6 bucks more. Considering it was in the middle of nowhere they should charge a little less. Despite the price the place had plenty of customers. I guess there aren't many alternatives in the area. As for the food, we thought it was tasty enough, but nothing really special sticks in the memory. If you want to eat a lot and not be surprised, this is the place.

Good for hungry farmers.

Quiet lunch, nothing special

We went here for lunch (and we had a coupon from the Entertainment Book). Being Friday, lunchtime, it was very quiet, lots of tables, we sat at one beside the window with a nice view of the golfcourse. There wasn't a huge selection, but it was ok, salads were fresh. The other items were ok, but nothing outstanding. There was sweet & sour pork, salmon, jerk chicken, two different pastas, rice & scalloped potatoes. There were rolls and one soup. A variety of salads, greek, potato, etc. Desert table had a nice selection. Service was good. It's a good deal when using a coupon. Not sure if I would go again, unless they revamped the menu.

Food are good, but bad management

We had a really bad experience at Mr A when we celebrated our mom's 50th bday. We talked to the manager personally like a month before the bday to reserve the front area for 50 ppl where the live band is (coz my mom loves music and dancing and stuff) I particularly mention that we dont want any other area but the front. I even phoned them a week before to confirm. so when we got to the place on the actual bday, i was so shocked when theres a lot of ppl in the front area, I was like," we reserve this area how come there r lots of ppl there?!!!" I was so pissed off when i found out that the MANAGER got mixed up. He booked someone else on our area and He booked mine to the other part of the restaurant (far from the band, around the corner) I didnt know what to say.....I was in the verge of crying coz it was my mom's 50th bday, c'mon i wanted the best bday for my mom. He was not even nice, he was yelling at us and kept telling us that he didnt know why it wasnt written on his schedule book that I booked that area....HELLO?its not my freaking prob if he didnt write it...aargh!!!!so we got no choice but to take the other area. It wasnt the way i planned it. I will never forget this experience. They need to new management. They ARE NOT ORGANIZED, NOT PROFESSIONAL!!!!!!
